Oppress. are a solo project from the United Kingdom that plays a very aggressive of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2019 demo "Omnigasm".
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the demo while the riffing also shows an influence of death metal. When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted and melodic style along with the riffing also getting very dissonant at times and the vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams.
A touch of doom metal can also be heard in some of the slower riffing along with the faster sections of the music also adding in a decent amount of blast beats. The songs also bring in a more modern and aggressive style of black metal, when tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling as well the music always remains very aggressive sounding and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Oppress. plays a style of black metal that is very aggressive reminding me of some of the 2000's era of Mayhem but with more heaviness. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Oppress. are a very great sounding aggressive black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Scraping Of Bleached Bones". 8 out of 10.
